Atlanta rapper and actor Bow Wow, who recently announced he is retiring from the music business before he turns 30, will host a Spike TV game show called “Tracks.”
Preview night will be Sept. 1. Christina Aguilera is an executive producer.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show will be paired that night with “Lip Sync Battle.”
Tracks is described as an innovative musical game show where teams of two attempt to name a song title just by listening to its individual tracks — like guitar, bass, vocals, etc. Tracks, like Lip Sync Battle, will feature surprise celebrity musical guests performing tracks that could either be their own or someone else’s. One of the preview episodes features Tommy Lee performing the drum track during game play. Aguilera will make special appearances both episodes. (Watch a preview, below.)

Bow Wow’s most recent TV acting gig was “CSI: Cyber,” which was cancelled this spring after two seasons.
